Hope you don't mind I tap to your post.

But I have a spare tonneau cover for the Mazda 5 2011 onwards up for sale. Good condition, asking for $800 ono.
I can send you a picture of cover, drop me a PM.

If anyone keen please drop me a PM.

Thanks.

Any owner here changed their tyres recently? Tyre noise seems to be getting worst with wear. Any recommended brand?


I have changed mine to Toyo (normal road type / usage condition). Superb...

Hi guys,

 

I just changed my ATF M-V at 82k km. Mazda SC recommends the first ATF change only at 100k km - complete flush (8L) plus ATF filter change (est total price ard RM900+ including labour), but I prefer doing only a simple drain n refill as the factory ATF has turned dark before 100k km.

 

Did it at Mazda SC Puchong. Cost me RM180 (including labour but before GST). SC charged a full bottle of 4L altho qty refilled is only around 3.4L. took d balance back. noticed shifting has improved. ;)

 

In the owner's manual, no ATF or ATF filter change is ever required for the gearbox. It's a lifetime ATF according to Mazda Japan. :wacko:

but i am choosing the cheapest option of drain n refill every 40k km, rather than the costly option of opening up d gearbox for the ATF filter change. In my opinion, I dont think the ATF filter needs changing if drain n refill is done frequently.

 

cheers.

also bought a new Tonneau Cover from Bermaz PJ that cost RM1200 (including GST). Genuine parts from Japan.

 

i tried to search for cheaper alternative local or imported products but failed. :(  this MPV is very rare on the road indeed.
